My family of 4 plus my mother spent a week at Mt. Sky in late July. I have traveled a lot, and must say that I give this a "5" because the service throughout the whole week - including the wranglers, the chef and wait-staff, reception, kid counselors, and others who we came in contact with were all superb. The General Manager Yancy makes it a point to get to know your name during the week, and the meals & activities are set up to encourage friendly interactions with the other guests that week. The food is delicious and prepared by a professional staff. We arrived with limited experience with horses, but left being totally comfortable riding multiple hours a day because of the excellent training and friendly, knowledgeable wranglers. The ranch has enthusiastic and experienced kid counselors who make sure that your kids have a GREAT time every day - my kids have stayed in touch with the new friends they made last summer. The placement of this ranch in Paradise Valley affords spectacular views, and a fresh trail every time you head out. The main lodge is "western" luxurious (think Teddy Roosevelt) and the cabins are kept in top condition. We're going back, as I hear most guest do after their first visit.
